From the Back Cover

What do you do when you realize you're not who you want to be?

Rachelle Covington has it all. A fabulous home, a handsome and successful husband, two beautiful children, and a place in the upper crust that's quite comfortable. But life is not all it's cracked up to be, and Rachelle finds herself yearning for more.

When her husband goes away on a business trip and the kids are sent off to the grandparents for a month, Rachelle heads back to Jubilant, Texas, to visit family and reconnect with her past, her purpose, and herself. But when a blast from the past shows up, Rachelle must confront feelings she thought she'd long buried. Will she give up everything to recover what could have been? Or will she find a reason to plan for the future?

Fresh, sincere, and full of hope, The Someday List is an honest look at what makes us who we are.

More About the Author

When I discovered words in kindergarten, writing discovered me, and we've been joined by the pen ever since. I love writing books that entertain readers, give them a few "aha" moments along the way, and help them value life's journey.
My eight faith-based novels have been known to yield laughter and tears, and leave readers feeling deeply connected to the multifaceted characters they meet, while my sole nonfiction book will inspire you to connect more deeply with God.
Ultimately, whether you're reading my fiction or nonfiction, I hope you'll reach the end of what I've written not only feeling more hopeful, but also changed for the better.
If you're new to my work, thanks for reading! If you're a long-time reader, thanks for your continued support. Will you please share your thoughts about my novels here on Amazon, and with your friends? Also sign up for my author newsletter at so we can stay in touch regularly.

Thanks, and All My Best!

Kept me wanting to read the book non-stop.
I especially loved how relevant forgiveness, love and God are to the story, as in life.
The characters were well defined and interesting.

"Someday" I want to give Stacy Hawkins Adams a big hug for writing this awesome story. While I acknowledge that the Lord inspires Christian Fiction authors, the artist is one who actually toils to bring the work to the pages of a book. Stacy Hawkins Adams efforts were not in vain. The characters of Rachelle and Gabe Covington, Aunt Irene and Melba, Uncle Charles and Troy all reminded me of people in my own life. They were real family and friends that I loved and rooted for as I turned each and every page. The small, quaint, city of Jubilant was a refreshing change, as so many African-American novels are set in urban cities. I can see why Rachelle made the journey there. It made me want to sell my house and move to place where life felt simpler. Now that's good writing.

As a symbol of purpose and destiny, the "someday list" itself, served the story well. I have a list of goals and I have timelines to complete them. I check my schedule a few times a year to see if I'm on task. Sometimes I am, sometimes I'm not, but I am the quintessential list person. However, there was something different about the "someday list" in this novel, even for a planner like myself. Something I describe as the spiritual fiber that may always exist in our list of to do's and to accomplish.

The Someday List made me think about myself and my life. The life lessons were hard to miss. I'm hard pressed to believe anyone would close its pages and not feel the same way. So I give this book the highest review I can assign, because not only did I enjoy it, I was challenged. In my opinion that's the role of literature, to shape our conscious thinking and inspire our actions in a way that also entertains us. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who feels the same.

What do you want to accomplish in life? What are your goals? These questions, asked by a childhood friend who is now dying of cancer, along with other things going on in her life, cause Rachelle, the beautiful wife of a wealthy cardiac surgeon and mother of two beautiful children, to take a hard look at her life. She doesn't like what she sees. Her husband, though a good provider materially, isn't meeting her emotional needs. Her life is a round of tennis games, manicures, workouts, parties and volunteering at the "right" jobs. When her husband is in Uganda on a mission trip with his partner and her children are at her parents', she visits her aunt and uncle in her college town, and runs into an old flame, who was more than just a flame. Does she return to her past, or stick with the present? You'll have to read the book to know.

Both Rachelle and her husband appear to have everything; yet both are empty inside. Other people suggest to them that finding Jesus will solve their problems, putting this book squarely in the "find Jesus and solve your problems" type of Christian literature Both have religious discussions with other people and both wonder if they can accept Christianity.

I enjoyed the book, but there is nothing subtle about the religious messages in it.

SYNOPSIS: Rachelle Covington has it all. Will she give up everything to recover the past? Or will she find a reason to plan for the future?


REVIEW: Most people daydream about the life they believe Rachelle Covington lives. Successful husband, beautiful children and a lavish lifestyle as a stay at home mother. Her mother and sister remind her constantly that she is blessed beyond measure with the trappings of the American dream. Behind the scenes she is battling with the consequences of living her life by other people's rules instead of following her heart.

Gabe Covington has a beautiful loving supportive wife. He is adored by the two well mannered adorable children his wife left her career to raise. His status as one of the nation's brightest and best cardiac surgeon's is well established. Gabe Covington has it all, so why is he oblivious to the fact he may lose it?

THE SOMEDAY LIST is a riveting story. Stacy Hawkins Adams also takes you behind the scenes to the life of a woman who by all superficial standards should be happy. From the initial introduction the main characters develop and become real with each scene. The plot has several quirky twists and unexpected believable points. The scenery and description balanced and crisp enabling readers to step into the world the characters live in. Dialogue and character interaction present biblical principle and spark introspection. With THE SOMEDAY LIST, Ms. Hawkins reaches down into the soul of readers and makes them examine the life they have come to live and who they thought they would be.

This is my first time reading a title by Stacy Hawkins Adams but it will not be my last. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a thought provoking entertaining read.

The Someday List by Stacy Hawkins Adams is an inspiring and empowering read. I enjoyed this novel because it was not your traditional Christian fiction read. Adams has her own unique and distinctive voice, one that is fresh and has shown growth and maturity with each book. In the Someday List, Adams dealt with issues realistically without being preachy. She creatively crafted and balanced secular and non-secular topics. Also, I liked that she kept things believable and did not feel compelled to wrap up everything in a neat box. Someday List characters were well-developed including the secondary characters. True to real life, there were characters I loved, I liked, I laughed out loud with, I cried with and others I loved to hate. But, all of the characters were memorable and while flawed each of them still had some redeeming qualities.

The Someday List by Stacy Hawkins Adams is an entertaining and engaging read, and a page-turner which held my attention from page one until the end. It is an honest and refreshing look at life, faith, relationships, marriage and family. It so captured me that I wanted to and was able to read it in one sitting. It is a novel that I recommend to Christian fiction fans, as well as, those who just enjoy a good storyline and a good book. APOOO Rating: 4.5 out of 5.0 stars
